magespawnhey superfly mazal 06:54
magespawntodays project is find a small debian based distro to run on a old laptop06:54
Kiloshow small06:55
superflymagespawn: just use Debian. It's not Ubuntu.06:56
superflymagespawn: Download the minimal Debian, and then install LXqt or XFCE06:57
magespawni have had a look at puppy and slitaz so far, not debian based but what the hell06:58
magespawnsuperfly: does debian come without a default desktop?06:58
Kilosmagespawn  what specs for the lappy07:07
magespawnKilos: do not have it with me the moment, will have to get that tomorrow07:08
magespawn512 ram i think, used to have xp on it, but it is now running the latest ubuntu server07:09
Kilosimo under 2.8g dual with less than 2g ram is too much for ubuntu07:09
Kilostoo weak07:10
magespawnthis is the server, no unity, or any desktop actually07:11
Kilosoh you want to run server?07:11
magespawnnot particularly, this is just a machine i try things out on07:12

MaNIand an unanswered question about a R900k laptop08:46
Kiloswhat was that about MaNI  ?08:46
Kilosi missed that08:46
KilosR900k seems kinda heavy08:47
MaNI[02:06] <Private_User> LOL I just visited the system76 site and customized the top of the range server, desktop and laptop with all the bells and whistles and it came to R908 938.16...08:49
MaNI[02:06] <Private_User> lol08:49
MaNI[02:07] <Private_User> how much you guys think I can build the same stuff buying hardware locally which is all compatible with ubuntu?08:49

MaNII don't know what to say :P08:49
MopkopThe same stuff? Hmm, I'm guessing it is the server that cost so much? I doubt that he can make a top of the range server for very cheap.08:55
MaNIdefine top of the range, there is always something better :p08:56

grembleGood morning10:49
Kiloshi gremble  10:49
grembleI am done with my exams LD10:50
Kiloshow did it go?10:50
gremblePhoned the highschool and told them I will help with Winter School for the matrics10:50
grembleit went well, I would say10:50
Kilosgood 10:50
Kiloswhat is winter school10:51
grembleSome schools struggle to get through the matric curriculum, mostly state schools. So there is a winter school that is two weeks in the June/July holiday where the learners can come and either get help with work, or more attention can be given to the neccesary parts in the curriculum10:52
grembleSome schools have it as optional extras but for the others they need it to get through all the work for the students10:52
grembleI offered to help out Hoerskool Tuine as it is close by10:53
Kilosdo you speak afrikaans?10:53
grembleYup. 10:54
grembleMy english is better though. Even though I've been put through an Afrikaans education :P10:54
Kilosenjoy teaching the young10:55
grembleI doubt it. I'm not a fan. However, I can imagine that they need someone who isn't tired of their shit and enjoys the subject every once in a while10:56
magespawngremble: what would you teach?11:24
magespawna lot of people need help with that subject11:24
gremble(Or NatSci, but I don't like chemistry that much, so I'm hoping it is mathematics)11:25
grembleYup. That is why I am volunteering11:25
magespawnyou could probably do physics too then11:25
grembleI missed out with doing community work last year at a school. So I am trying again this year11:25
grembleAlbeit a bit late11:25
magespawnbetter late then never11:26
grembleSadly that seems to be my motto11:26
